Not true :D
Yesterday I first time play on this game (after big party -> my wife birthday ;)).
Read my last words:
PS. This game has nothing common with DonPachi or other shmup.
Made save state on for example level 20 and very careful observe enemies on phase 1 and next enemies on phase 2 and 'crazy ship'.

so you're saying there's no patterns on Donpachi or what...?

I don't know, even if you think you have the patterns down, you can still easily die at any point... especially on the highways.

In DonPachi you must still move using your joystick between enemies or bullets, if you stay you die. In radrad is reverse :D
With my method you made less points (about 3-5k for stage) but you will be more safe.;)

You high-scoring-boys ruined the competition. I have lost the wil to play and for doing anything else (all-day hangover does it's thing).
Screw you guys, I'm going home

Except the random prize this week is a really bad 1983 movie about a video arcade.

You'd think des would be inclined to read the announcements a little more closely at this point...

And:

Hehe, yes, I read TRB description and write the same :D No T-Shirt in this week.

One correction BBH:
destructor wrote:game looks easier on later (from level 10) levels
Change level to 16.
I didn't found 'safe spots' (in first phase of level) in levels 11,12,14,15 then these levels are hardest.

Well... at this moment I have 10% of chance to win something again :)

And about the game of this week... game is very good, but no time to play this week... I am trying to win around USD 400 in one gaming competition only into my company. Well... at least the last prize there is USD 40, and I hope to win someone. :)

Good luck to all here!

Well, the winning number is 13.

Yes, the ploy of playing to 100,000 points and then killing off his extra men payed off. If you can call it that.

And George...you actually have to watch the movie. That'll teach you.
